      It's hard to tell, especially when this is Rush poker... You can check/call or fold river, depending on the villain's type and the bet size. If he's straightforward then definitely fold to a value bet.

      The block bet just looks weak and may induce a bluff from busted draws, although the A also pairs nut FD up. So it's ugly. Villain probably don't have a straight on the river because you have Ks.

      I would bet more on the turn. This is a draw-heavy board and you want villain to pay to draw to the river.

      A fancy way of playing this is to check/shove river. However on a draw-heavy board like this plrs may put you on a busted draw, and just call with Ax. They will also have a hard time folding their aces-up if they had one. So folding is the best play here I guess.

      How exctly are you going to check/shove with less than a psb left? ;)

      I think river is c/f more often than not. AJ, AQ get there. You block the only worse hand he might value bet. A large percentage of flush draws now have top pair, and he has few 9T combos. + it's Rush poker - fish dont just call any 2 suited pre and spazz postflop like in regular games.

      Definetely fold, at least for me...
      I think your turn bet is ok, if you plan to c/f such a river.
      Block bet is too obv. though

      Here's my question. If you were the villain and had AJ on the river, would you call a check-raise AI or would you fold?

      I think you have to call min-raise, especially since you made it that small. he may sometimes show you some busted draws and you don´t have to be right that often
